The organ of St Michael's Church was built by the firm Rieger, in the Czech Republic, in 1923. It was installed initially in the salons of the Hotel Majestic in Paris. The Hotel Majestic became property of the State in 1936 and the Ministry of war moved in. The organ was then bought by the St. Michael parish. This instrument is particularly interesting because its style is virtually unique in France. It is, rather than a church organ, an ‘orgue de salon’, probably built in Germany or America. It has a function called 'cinema organ'. (Source: http://saintmichel-paris.fr/L-orgue)
